Next Generation Performance Monitoring Data Needs for Nevada DOT


This report examines Nevada DOT (NDOT)’s state-of-practice for performance measurement, and focuses on federal requirements for traveler information mandated by the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) Section 1201 Real-Time System Management Information Program. The guidance for November 2016 compliance identifies 17 candidate Routes of Significance within the Las Vegas metropolitan area based on usage criteria, and provides a prioritized list of required sensor locations for full coverage of these routes. It is recommended that NDOT explore the use of private probe data to generate travel time information along arterial routes.
